5 Knights Slot by Next Gen
5 Knights slot is a medieval themed online slot with a few unique features. This is not a progressive slot, and although it does have good graphics it may not hold the attention of experienced slot players for very long. 5 Knights slot is a five reel game with twenty five optional paylines and nine different ways to stake those twenty five paylines. This makes 5 Knights slot an inviting game for beginners.
5 Knights slot can also be played for free money as well as real money in many online casinos, which is a recommended plan for beginners to the online slot world. Practicing on a game before committing any real money to it is always a good idea.
5 Knights slot is set in medieval times when knights protected their king’s valour and kingdom. The graphics in 5 Knights slot are not quite on par with some of the newer Next Gen slots, but they are nice enough to look at and pretty detailed. Behind the reels is a mountainous scene with orange clouds and green fields. This is because the reels themselves have been designed to look like a rather Disney looking castle which appears to be perched on top of a mountain. The sound track is rousing and suited nicely to the theme so you will not be reaching for the mute button.
Knights and Maidens
Knights have a lot of lore and mythology surrounding them and their various quests. 5 Knights slot pays homage to much of that lore by means of its theme based symbols. Armour and weapons such as a sword are the bottom paying theme based symbols. These will award a player with 150 times your stake for five of them in a row on an active payline. Five fair maidens will award you with 250 times your stake as will five knights.
Slide a Wild and free Spins
5 Knights slot has a unique little feature called Slide a Wild. This basically enables the player to use a slider and place an extra wild on the reels during the base game. Should you create a win on a certain reel using this extra wild, you will be awarded with an extra multiplier depending on which reel was in play. This ranges from 2x on reel one to 6x on reel 5.
The shield symbol is the slots wild symbol and can replace all other symbols in the game except for the scatter which is a picture of the aforementioned castle. The shield wild can also appear stacked on the reels, essentially filling a whole reel.
Three or more castle scatters will launch the free spins round. Initially you will be granted with fifteen free spins. These can be retriggered during the round and will also award you with double any winnings that you accrue during the free spins. Scatters are also some of the highest paying symbols in the game. Two of them will refund your stake whilst five of them will pay up to 100 times your stake.
